Over the past 3 weeks I have received exactly 27 calls from this number, I called it back, was given another number 1-800-379-7808, press option 9 to have your number removed from their call list. Just did it so we will see if it works.

This is a typically bogus charity using the name Policeman & Fireman Oldtimers Hockey Challenge to supposedly "support" a Hamilton, Ontario, Canada police association! DO NOT DONATE! Just another scam for your money!

Tip of the century:

Download a wave or mp3 file of a fax machine answering, play it on something so you can record it as your answering machine message, it might take some trial and error to make it sound convincing, call yourself and test.

I tell all your friends to wait for the beep at the end of about ten seconds of "Fax Answering", and it works, I never see the same telemarketers' number twice, and the calls have become less frequent.

If you like this tip, PASS IT ON, Please, for the betterment of humanity.

Enjoy

1-800-525-9241 has just started calling me in New Brunswick. Always sounds like someone who could be a friend or your dentist calling. "Is Joe #$# there?" I always cheerily respond no and ask if he wants to leave a message. He sighs an annoyed "No" every time then hangs up right away. He is getting more annoyed every day. If you want to simply annoy him, this works very well.

i called the toll free number, typed 8 for the directory, then 486, then # for Olga. it lists her cell number. i requested to be removed from the list. Since Bell just got that 1 million fine, i think they may be paying attention to their DNC list a bit more....

This is an answer to "banger": XENTEL do not run their offices from basements. The Shriners have employed XENTEL for years to raise funds by means of the circus and magic shows. Various Police agencies across Canada and the States have employed XENTEL for years to raise funds for other charities. In the years that I worked for Xentel I was always polite on the telephone, I didn't address the customer by their first name (unless I knew them),if they turned me down I rebutted them once thanked them for their time and went to my next call. I'm wondering how many former XENTEL employees there are out there who because of working for XENTEL allowed them to continue in school. My advice is if u don't want to receive any of these calls, get an answering machine!

Thank You

this is to 'a' you are probably not an 'employee' of these idiots more likely one of the persons running this scam. ever heard of people's right to not be constantly called and harassed at home in the evening. just got yet another call from this number it was around 8:30 pm. so rather than posting and saying people have no idea what they are talking about try to get your 'employees' to learn some manners. as mentioned before if you are trying to collect donations this isn't really the way to go about it...anyone else get the feeling that we as the people who pay monthly for our phone lines don't seem to have any sort of rights to get people to stop bothering us constantly
mad
 Feb 13th, 2010
Received power-dialed recorded message this evening (partially cut-off at beginning) from a person identifying himself as Thomas Robitaille, with no company or position details. He advised it was an urgent business matter and to call back with a reference #318166. According to our call display, the call was made from 800-525-9241.

This is the first time we've received a call from this number with no messages received before. The first part of his message advised to press 1 to respond immediately. Right afterwards, there was brief click, then "Thomas" advised we were not in compliance with his office because he did not get a call back from us [apparently, immediately!] He stated it was a time-sensitive matter and if he did not receive a call back within 48 hours, he would take unspecified action against us. I called back once but did not receive an answer, only an automated voice mail recording with no business name provided.

From previous experience, this is most likely a data miner (often run by organized crime groups fronting as telemarketers) who try to obtain people's personal information for fraudulent/criminal purposes. We are registered with the Do Not Call Registry so I am not convinced this is a legitimate telemarketing agency. Particularly in light of Sarah’s report below.

We have received similar calls like this in the past. The only way we could stop them from calling anymore (after getting the usual runaround from the telephone carrier) was to threaten them that we would pursue criminal/civil action against them if they did not follow up directly with the subscribers to advise them of all the on-line complaints about that number. The smallest hint of a report to police seemed to be the magic words. Surprise, surprise - we received no more calls from those particular callers! If we receive further repeated calls from this number, I will not hesitate to use the same tactic as before (if I get nowhere with the telephone carrier). Why don’t we start writing to government to strengthen consumer protection, privacy, and criminal laws!

MESSAGE TO "A" - I will find out who you really are, you bloody liar! What kind of a telemarketing agency would threaten to "take action" the first time calling us! I think it's time to contact the police about "Xentel". What are you doing searching for complaints about your own number anyway?!?! Sounds like someone with something to hide, "a"nonymous!

I have a suggestion to discourage them to operate. Here is how:
1. Use Internet Skype phone to call them. Their alternate phone number is 1-800-379-7808. Using Skype, they can't trace who you are or what is your land line number. Also there is no charge using the Skype service with 1-800 numbers.
2. When the line get through, go to option 4. This will connect you to a life person. Get his/her name and ask some stupid personal question like his/her age, marriage status...this will get him/her mad.
3. Tell him/her the conversation is recorded or will be broadcasted. This will cause him/her to calm down.
4. Now you can question them why their phone calls are bordering you.
5. If everybody is doing the Skype call a few time a day, I am sure their business will not function. Their operator will quit the job.

They keep on calling everyday. When I pickup the phone, they hung up on me. So I call them instead. I was told to dial 1-800-379-7808 for complaint. It was a waste of time asking them to remove my phone no. from their list.
Here is the solution:
1. Use Internet Skype to call them. Do not use your home phone because it will display your number.
2. If everybody is doing the same thing continuously for at least 15 minutes a day, it will flood up their phone system.
3. They will be very flustrated in answering the call that you made. They don't know who you are. They have no way of tracing you anyway.

They called around noon and asked if Mr. "last name" was in. I said no-, and then he proceeded to say "Well then please tell him this is Patrick----" and he hung up (by reading this, it sounds as if that was on purpose).

He didn't give me a chance to let him know that there is no Mr. "last name" as it's my name listed in the phone book and not my boyfriends. Hmm

They call our business almost every day, when I answer, nobody is there.

I've been doing that for months, and believe it or not, they still call so it has to be a computer.

Maybe your company should look into some customer service training for it's employees, because clearly they haven't had any.I have NEVER been spoken to so rudely by someone collecting money for charity in my life.

Creepiest phone call I've ever gotten. Some guy sounding like he was drunk and in a bar asked for the Mr. or Mrs. of the house. I asked who was calling a few times and he got more and more agitated until he finally told me he was calling from Xentel and wanted to speak to the Mr. or Mrs., so I finally said that was me and he got really mad and said "You're killing me" and hung up. I have to say it weirded me out quite a bit. I *69'd and at least now that I know what it was I'm not so creeped out anymore.

I called him names for over a minute. Odd thing is that he didn't hang up for so long and I was running out of names to call him. You try insulting a person for over a minute.

Seems to be an automated call system, they are calling me 2-3 times every single day sometimes around 9PM, ( Thanks for the kids trying to sleep )but I never answered. When you call back 1-800-525-9241, it's the oldtimer hockey challenge and it invites you to call 1-800-379-7808. When you call that number, you have the choice to order some tickets for the game and even remove the phone number you are calling from, from their list. I'm in Montreal, I will verify with my local phone service provider if I can trust it. I don't want to get my phone number added to an other list when trying to get rid of this one.
